Hi all,

My partner and I were high school sweethearts, but sadly I moved town when I was 15 - Anyways we have reunited this year and things were still sparking - We have been going out for 6 months..

He has a 20 month old and I have a 3 1/2 year old... My daughter is finding it very hard and trying to get the 20 month old in trouble...

Any advise would be greatful as I am new to this and would love for them to get along...

Thank you for this information - Anything helps - Yea my partner is good we back each other up on the disapline - During the day we go out and do things together like at the beach etc - I shall try the "helping out mum" bit with my daughter and see how that goes as she loves to help me so that could help :) Thank you again for this information.

I'm not sure what approaches you've tried yet ie. things they have in common etc. but when I had my daughter everyone was saying my son who is way to close to me would get gealous and hate her. I was lucky mostly but I involved him in everything to do with her and gave him some responsibility as the older one. He liked that, but the big thing was telling him that instead of less love there would be more because she would love him too I don't know if any of that will help I'm sure you've tried everything good luck just don't let your daughter get over punished to suit his needs and daughters needs make sure its equal committal from both parents
